Pardhangi Address

Description Despite Sikh Guru's teachings and Sikh religion's fundamental postulate of equality irrespective of one's caste or gender, the Sikh society has not been able to rid itself of the wretched caste system laid down and perpetuated by Hinduism. This address highlights the atrocities and deprivation perpetrated upon the community of the Mazhabi and Ravidasia Sikhs by the Sikhs belonging to the upper castes in the feudal state of Patiala. It exhorts the members of these oppressed and exploited classes to organize themselves and fight for their human rights. The address is analytical, inspiring and reflects the emergence of an enlightened leadership among these communities. It also holds a mirror to the Sikh society with all its warts and pockmarks[edit]
